This is my personal collection of semi-public thoughts and observations. Nothing more.

One of my great irritations in life is the elevation of the personal page to some sort of alternative media on par with (or by some self aggrandizing measures, superior to) the “main stream media,” (referred to as MSM by the most egregious.)

Like other “bloggers,” nobody edits this content, nobody vets it, nobody fact checks it. Anything that appears is my choice only. A blog has no more authority or validity or value than a personal letter or diary revealed. At best, the content on blogs rises to the level of the “to the editor” page of a local newspaper desperate for content, but even in such often less than fully staffed venues the crap is skimmed off by someone who can at least read before publication and commitment to posterity; not here, not on any blog.

It is to this standard of mediocrity I aspire.  Nothing more.
